If you think those pills
create more problems than they're worth, that
those tablets and capsules don't treat your
don't address your needs
that they aren't a solution
If you wonder why you're much
sicker than you were before
and ask yourself how you got here
to this land of doctors appointments
with a pill case jingling with promises of a solution
that brought you to this place
and the men and women who agreed
they were ever a treatment,
you were right
And they weren't right about you.
That voice deep down
that told you the truth
and when you breathed it
aloud in that soft out spoken way
or the voice of vengeance you earned a right to speak in
and they condemned you and then
threw you away far beyond the margins
of the economy and you hung on to the edge
of a society
you weren't easily enough controlled by.
You were right
you are now, too.
All is not lost.
This is an anthem.
Start to reclaim yourself,
slowly this time, even though
you want to throw it down the drain,
flush it down the nearest toilet
far away from you
to remove the bottles of opportunity you might
use to get the hell out of here.
Try and avoid
years of protracted withdrawal
that might embed itself upon the trauma
you've already endured. Step away from your
medication regime long enough to listen
to the sound of your heart singing
songs of justice
and believe what it tells you is true.
Those medications are no treatment
and those people you trusted with the most intimate details
of your life are not trustworthy.
They don't have your best interests
at heart, but you do.
I believe you.
I know you are true.
You were right about those pills,
that were no solution.
You are enough.
Find your family
of choice, your community.
Learn that blood is not thicker than water.
Love is thicker than blood
and you will find your way home.
